WorkSafe Bulletin Attention All Operators of Mobile Cranes, Tower Cranes, Self-Erect Cranes, and Boom Trucks
Crane operators in British Columbia must have a valid operator’s certificate by February 28, 2011. Any operator not certified by February 28 cannot legally operate a crane in British Columbia. There are still many operators who have not been assessed and time and resources are limited. If you don’t book immediately, you may not get your assessment completed by the deadline. If you have not booked your assessment or registered with the BC Association for Crane Safety, please contact their office at 604-525-1227 (www.bcacs.ca). Operators who are required to apply to the Industry Training Authority (ITA) should be aware that review and verification of your application will take four to six weeks. You cannot be assessed until your application is approved.
